Solid spruce top for great tone

Yamaha chose a solid spruce top for their FG820-12, due to its look and tone. Spruce has a well-rounded, articulate sound with excellent projection. These qualities have made it the undisputed leader for acoustic guitar tops. And because it's made from solid wood, the tone will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by. Beyond that, the FG820-12 boasts scalloped bracing, resulting in a larger low end and more projection.

Mahogany back and sides

The FG820-12 sports a back and sides made from mahogany. The strummers here at Music Experience appreciate this wood for its warm, well-balanced tone. It enhances midrange frequencies while maintaining top-end clarity. The sound is gentle and full, which is ideal for vocal accompaniment. Combined with the lively and defined sound of its spruce top, you'll love the rich tone you get from the Yamaha FG820-12's mahogany.

Yamaha FG: the best-selling acoustic guitar series in the world

It's not hard to see why Yamaha's FG series is a world best seller: the comfortable dreadnought bodies, professional-grade tonewoods, and fast-playing necks make these acoustics great first instruments for beginners, and solid seconds for seasoned players who need an extra acoustic for the stage or to play around the house.

What Yamaha Says...

When it was introduced in 1966, the Yamaha FG proved that a great acoustic guitar didn’t need to cost a fortune. With a focus on great playability, musical tone and outstanding build quality, the original FG180 quickly became a classic with countless careers and hit records starting life on an FG. 50 years since the introduction of the FG acoustics, the new range features the best-ever FG tone and the same great playability and class-leading quality that’s made it the choice of millions of guitarists. Wherever your musical journey’s going, it all starts here. In addition to warmer and stronger sound thanks to the mahogany back and sides, the body binding and fingerboard binding are cream plastic, for an upgraded look.
